It's that time of the year again, so might as well start a discussion thread for all us budding applicants.

So what specialties is everyone applying for? Have you got an interview?

Same thing, I've always wondered how many places they've got going. Apparently they have a 15% acceptance rate so it's not that easy to get in to.

Did you apply to any other branches or just mental health?

Just mental health also. Have a lot of experience with learning disabilities and interlinked mental health problems which really interests me.

I wonder how many actually have in for mental health. I know it's about 45 places each year. Hopefully just focusing on one route will allow us to focus on providing the best answers tailored exactly to it.

I'm from a small town and know of 3 others who live relatively close to me with interviews so they must have quite a few applicants!

But they give out more offers than there are places as they know not everyone is going to pick Magee.

Last year there was apparently 1200 going for it and 240 places. Meaning you have a 20% chance of a place, but if they give out more, it's a 1/4 chance I'd bet. Which isn't that bad to be fair if you are prepared and know your stuff AND don't let the stress kill you during the interview.

Yeah it's competitive but doable! I'm feeling hopeful as I got an offer for MH nursing from Magee 2 years ago, but decided not to take it up due to an employment opportunity. So fingers crossed I do ok this time too!

Hey guys, I was recently unsuccessful for adult nursing in UU Magee after my interview, since then I'm on the waiting list if people don't get the grades in August ? I was just wondering is there any point me waiting to see if I get into Magee as I hold another offer for Napier in Edinburgh but not pushed on going as I am a home bird?

Just wondering does anyone know anyone who got in this way?

Thank you.
